Uvita Top Add-on Digital Sewing Pattern (PDF)

(62 customer reviews)


The ever-so-popular Uvita Top pattern now has new add-ons! The original Uvita Top is a relaxed knit top with a boat neck and two sleeve options (long and 3/4 length). Now with the additional pieces and instructions, you can make even more styles with the Uvita Top. Use the hood, kangaroo pocket and cuff with thumbhole to create a sporty look. Or use the floppy stand-up collar, patch pockets and flare sleeves to create a retro look. Of course you can mix and match the pieces to create a look of your very own!

(Note that you will need the original Uvita Top pattern to complete the add-on pattern.)

    Makes a lovely well fitting hoodie. Already made two but I have left the band off the bottom and have a plain hem. Love it. Good instructions too.

  4. Mary (verified owner)

    It was an awesome pattern . Great that the main pattern was free to try and the additional pattern purchased gave me so many options . Great value and very versatile . Like all itch to stitch it sewed up beautifully .

  5. Kay (verified owner)

    Lovely addition to the Uvita top

  6. Liz (verified owner)

    I am having fun trying out all the Uvita options. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. The fit was good after choosing the size according to my measurements. The sleeves were rather long, but that’s an easy fix. I’ve made one in cotton jersey, one in a fluffy knit and one in a medium weight cotton jersey with cowl neck and cuffs.

  7. Rosemary (verified owner)

    very helpful when trying to print just one or two of the add-ons

  8. Jennifer Cumming (verified owner)

    Love the pattern add-on. Thanks.

  9. annette (verified owner)

    Beginner friendly easy sew.

  10. Kadri (verified owner)

    I love this add-on to already really good basic and free pattern Uvita. I made the cuffs, used the hood, bottom band and the kangaroo pocket. My new hoodie is so comfortable and perfect! Thank you!

  11. undukas (verified owner)

    I’m just finishing up my Uvita with the add-on and I have to say – all these addition make Uvita even greater. I made the thumbhole cuffs, hood and kangaroo pocket with bottom band. I’m really happy with my new hoodie and I’m going to wear it a lot!

  12. amy (verified owner)

    Great addition to the Uvita top!!!

  13. Andrea (verified owner)

    Fashionable and easy to customize.

  14. Kelly (verified owner)

    I love this pattern!

  15. Lisa (verified owner)

    Nice pattern. It was a little confusing to switch between the Uvita pattern instructions and the add-on instructions, and to know where to start. I also had a bit of a hard time figuring out how the patch pockets were applied. It was very simple, but the instructions could be more straight forward. It would have been helpful to have a statement such as “the pockets are sewn on the front with raw edges flush at the sides and bottom, and the center edges turned under. The edges will be sewn into the side seam and the bottom will be turned up with the hem.”

  16. Gini (verified owner)

    Easy and cute I love this pattern

  17. (verified owner)

    I made this with a snaggy fabric which was truly awful to work with. And I was bowled over by the amazingness of the result! The body shape is truly superb, very flattering, and the statement sleeves are really stunning. I did make the cuffs much shorter and the sleeves longer, as I felt that balanced better. I also added my usual 2” to the body to match my long back. I also love the neckline.

  18. Tecla (verified owner)

    Another innovative design–love the “mitts”.

  19. Donna Harder (verified owner)

    I just made the uvita top with cuffs and the floppy collar! Very nice!

  20. Louise (verified owner)

    Simple but good explanation

  21. Lynne (verified owner)

  22. Anonymous (verified owner)

    I made this one right away! Great instructions and a nicely drafted pattern!

  23. sue (verified owner)

    I love this addon to the Uvita pattern. Itch to Stitch patterns are a pleasure to sew, they fit together perfectly and the Instructions are easy to follow.

  24. Chanelle (verified owner)

    I love Itch to Stitch Patterns and designs. I have bought several and they are easy to follow and very true to size.

  25. Verona (verified owner)

    Excellent. Really pleased with the pattern for hood and kangaroo pocket. It is so great to have layers so I only need to print my size. Fits beautifully. Only comment is that with the hood attached, the neck line is a bit high at the front – so it feels a little as if it is pressing into my neck. Not a big problem, but I will probably move it down an inch the next time and alter the hood pattern. Thank you. Verona

  26. Anne (verified owner)

    très bon patron

  27. Kim (verified owner)

    Great add on package.

  28. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Love ITS patterns! Classic with a touch of trend; easy to work with, but most importantly, easy access to pattern designer for quick questions. Absolutely love Kennis!

  29. Anonymous (verified owner)

    It would be nice to be able to print the pattern from ‘preview’ on my computer, since that’s where my computer(an i-Mac) prints from. I have to ask my husband print the pattern on his computer( a pc).

  30. Sandy (verified owner)

    Great pattern and instructions. Love the thumb hole cuff!

  31. Lizzy (verified owner)

    I thought this was a great idea. I have already made the basic shirt and found it an excellent fit. Looking forward to trying lots of variations.

  32. Maria Luísa (verified owner)

    I really enjoy the way this add-on allows to create different views when combined with the Uvita Top. We can make it sporty, casual or even dress it up! It has notches to guide you, shorten/lengthen lines and it explains how to grade between sizes to give a perfect fit.

  33. Ruth (verified owner)

    The cuff with the thumb opening is functional and professional looking.

  34. jen.ballif (verified owner)

    This pattern has amazing value! I made one with the thumb hole cuffs and hood and it is now my winter staple.

  35. c (verified owner)

    Love the hood and front pocket. Easy instructions. I love my make.

  36. mireille (verified owner)

    Hoping that it will come in bigger size than size 20 but lovely pattern and so many things you can add on

  37. Mary (verified owner)

    I thought this was a nice addition to the original piece. I don’t have a lot of sewing experience, so patterns like this–those that build on another pattern that I already have–help me to see that I can do more with my patterns.

  38. Kirsti (verified owner)

    Directions were clear, add-ons were cute, final product turned out well. Thanks!

  39. Saskia (verified owner)

    Greet ADD-ON pakket, unfortunately I think the thumb holes thickness is to much. Also the with off the cuffs are to wide.
    The hoody and kangaroo poket are great.

  40. Frances (verified owner)

    Specially love the floppy neck – have used it already

  41. Becky (verified owner)

  45. Heike (verified owner)

    Eine sehr schöne Ergänzung für das freebook Uvita. Wie immer alles perfekt beschrieben.

  46. Cynthia (verified owner)

    Excellent pattern, as always!

  47. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Very excited to have these add one!

  48. Catherine (verified owner)

    The add-ons were good. Having a variety of options to go with a basic t-shirt is really practical. So many different tops for one pattern!! I made a tencel/cotton version with the standup collar. Very cozy. I’ve got my eyes on the hood and kangaroo pocket for a nice casual top. The instructions and drafting were excellent as always. The neckline of the Uvita top without the add-ons (the original) sits a little funny on me at the neckline and I can’t quite tell if it is a fit issue and, if so, what the issue is. I have broad and fairly muscular shoulders.

    I just want to say that I love your patterns. I learn a new technique each time, have a great fit without much alteration, and the styles suit me (feminine, stylish and modest with a hint of flirty). About the fit….I only have to shorten and, sometimes, put in a sway back adjustment. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that. To get a Big 4 pattern to fit almost requires re-drafting there are so many fit issues. Thank you!!!

    So far every Itch to Stitch pattern has been exceptional. The instructions are easy to follow and even a novice sewer can make an item easily. I am always waiting in anticipation for the email to say the next Itch to Stitch pattern is available!

    This add on package is amazing! So many wonderful options to change up an already great pattern, the Uvita top! I love all of the Itch to Stitch patterns that I have tried!

    Love the add-on pattern. Made the bell-sleeve version with the mock neck and my 16 year old immediately took it and I haven’t seen it since. Maybe I’ll get it back when she asks me to do her laundry…..
